I think it is quite safe to say everyone is completely smitten with baby Collins, especially big brother Bennett. this session ended up being a combined newborn and two year session… how time flies! it feels like i was just photographing Bennett as a newborn in that gorgeous nursery of his! i loved seeing him shining in his new role, and look forward to seeing them again in a few months in their new house!

i’ve been photographing mister brooks since he was a tiny baby and a few times since. every time i come away thinking how the C family are some of my favorite clients… they are such a happy crew who just love each other so much it overflows into such a wonderful session, every time. thank you for a perfect summer day.

“I’ve a sweetheart I love, so dearly—
She’s all that is lovely and fair!—
Her eyes are as blue as the bluebells
Though, as yet, she hasn’t much hair.
Her mouth is like a tiny rose bud,
Just asking for kisses from me;
And her sweet smiles are always ready
To break forth for each one to see.”

tiny miss emery burst onto the scene a few weeks ahead of schedule… not wanting to miss a thing. happily she was the most perfect model for me, and we ended up with such a beautiful session together. you are loved, little one.

miss kay just didn’t want to miss a thing with those beautiful bright eyes. she eventually dozed off and slept just sweet as could be, cooperating with all my posing and moving and inclusion of special props from mom and dad. what a trooper. keep watching sweet one.

i had the honor of photographing sweet Charlotte as a newborn and again at one year… so what fun to see her in the big sister role to baby Emma. so much like her sister, and yet her very own little person. thank you Irby family for trusting me to photograph this amazing season of new baby for you again!

Bigger and stronger too…
But none of them
Will ever love you the way I do
